if thats not the focus, ricky williams will look like the 2nd coming of jim brown. add that to their scrub TE scoring a td and 3rd wr looking like marvin harrison, and we may not even need to worry about the patriots.
Right on. Amazing how when the fans overlook a team so do the players. . . must be collective consciousness.

The defense is still very good, and is capable of being dominant. The special teams did show improvement. The sad thing is that they look leaps and bounds better then last week, but they still aren't even average.

The best news is that the game is over.

Troy (a.k.a "Captain Almost") Almost made a ton of plays in the Jet game.

I love the guy, but maybe D. LeBeau should consider a more conventional deployment of him in the future as he hasn't done squat this year.

any way...At least we can go back under the radar, if we have these kind of games its better to get them out of our system before the playoffs start, then we can go for another improbable Super Bowl run beating the Pats and Colts on the road

Weekly power rankings are all out now, and the Steelers seem to be at #5 pretty much everywhere. I'm kind of pleasantly surprised; I expected a freefall out of the top 10 after Sunday.

I know lots of us couldn't care less about those power rankings, though, and that's actually not why I'm posting this. From Coldhardfootballfacts.com, a interesting little bit in their power ranking, and something I did not consider:

Quote:
Cold, Hard Football Facts: Don?t blame the Steelers? defense: the new Steel Curtain allowed 4.4 yards per play vs. the Jets, held them to 3-for-15 on third and fourth downs, and forced three short field goals in the red zone.
What to make of this?

Great points. The Steelers did kind of fall apart on D at the end though. I'm kind of surprised to see praise from CHF. That board is a Pats schill.

Ben didn't get injured despite the o-line's terrible job.

I'm sorry, but with the o-line playing this bad there won't be a Super Bowl for us this year. Not with a line that plays with absolutely no pride or effort.

This was the ugliest loss the Steelers have had in years. Even being shut out was not as bad as this loss. The only positive I see is now maybe someone on the defensive side of the ball will take up where Porter left off and put some fire in the defense when the team is on the road.

During that game there were times when the team just seemed uninspired. They seemed to be sluggish. To quote John Madden on the Sunday night game a few weeks back. "They were not playing fast". They did not look like the flying around, attacking Steelers we are used to.

I believe we will beat the heck out of Miami 30-7 or even 35-3. But want I want to see is the next away game and if somebody on the defense fires up the team when the other teams offense is driving down the field for a winning score!
